It seems that CEMU Wii U is not only the one who is showing great progress in the field of emulation. RPCS3, the Playstation 3 emulator now supports Microsoft’s latest API DirectX12, and runs commercial games like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations at 30fps.
RPCS3: PlayStation 3 emulator for PC that works under DirectX 12
This Playstation 3 Emulator is Open Source and written in C ++, the Youtuber John GodGames has tested lots of games via this emulator on PC; including Silent Hill 3, Skullgirls, Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit and Of Orcs and Men among others. For now the emulator is in an early stage of development, which is why some games are very laggy or you can see some missing textures.
The amazing thing is that yesterday, Zangetsu (theoretically one of the developers of the emulator) published another video of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations at 30FPS.
So PC players finally have a decent Playstation 3 Emulator that can play moderate 2D/3D games at full frame rates. One year ago, it was crawling on the ground. But now, it’s standing up. I believe that in one year, this emulator will be praised for being able to play RDR at 1080p 60fps or more on the PC. Without any doubt, this project is very difficult. Now we just have to wait to see a better version of PlayStation 3 emulator to enjoy the entire catalog of PlayStation 3 games on PC.
